I’d like to share the info below from the “Keishichou” (Metropolitan Police Department) about preparing for earthquakes and what to do when a big one strikes:

[To Protect Your Family from Injury]

Look to your own safety.
● In order to avoid being injured, please note the following.
◆ Place the least amount of furniture in the bedroom.
◆ Sleep on the second floor if you live in a twostoried house.
◆ Secure furniture to the wall or ceiling with metal fixtures.
◆ Don’t place items on top of the dressers.
During the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake,unsecured furniture inside homes fell over,causing numerous injuries to people.

[Discuss Evacuation Plans with Your Family in Advance]

● Make sure that all members of your family know exactly where to evacuate and how to get contact with each other.
● It is important for families with small children and/or old people to ensure they understand the methods of evacuation thoroughly. especially
● Make a walking pre-survey of the routes up to the designated Temporary Gathering and Evacuation Sites in your neighborhood.

In the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake, many people rushed to dial their telephones at the same time causing mass confusion and disruption with the telephone network or its system.

Hindi ko naramdaman dito pero sabi ng isang officemate nakarinig daw siya ng 地鳴り (jinari - earth rumbling). Nakakatakot daw.
